Acclaim Lighting is launching a complete line of control solutions for DMX systems and LEDs with the introduction of the AR-12 Wall-Mount DMX recorder/controller.

The AR-12 is a trim unit that mounts easily on the wall and can play back programs and scenes downloaded into it from any standard DMX 512 controller. Capable of outputting up to 512 DMX channels, it is compatible with any standard LED system, DMX dimmer pack, or automated lighting fixture, allowing users to run simple playback control of an entire DMX-512 universe from one compact, easily accessible controller.

Featuring the ability to record and playback in real time, the AR-12 allows users to program complex fades and cues from any DMX console directly into the device. It can store 12 editable programs with a maximum of 99 scenes, which can be instantly recalled at the push of an assignable button.

Scenes can also be triggered automatically using the unit’s convenient built-in date/time clock. Another user convenience is a Master Dimmer function, which allows you to adjust the dimmer level global output manually from the controller.

Installers and operators will also rest assured that their lighting programs will remain secure and safeguarded against tampering. The AR-12 includes a Password Protection feature, which locks out unauthorized users.

“The AR-12 was designed with installer-friendly features that make it easy to control LEDs and DMX lighting in an architectural environment,” says Eric Loader, director of sales for Acclaim Lighting. “With its trim wall-mount design and simple operation, it’s much more convenient and accessible than a large DMX console.

“Just like we have done with LED lighting, Acclaim is committed to providing cutting-edge, control solutions for architectural fixtures,” Loader adds. “The AR-12 is the first of a complete line controller models for this market that we will be unveiling at very affordable prices.”

The AR-12 system consists of one AR-12C wall-mount playback/control station and one AR-12P DMX In/Out power supply driver. For multi-room/zone control, up to eight AR-12C units can be linked via RJ45 cable and powered off one AR-12P power box.

The MSRP of the AR-12 System, including one AR-12C wall-mount unit and one AR-12P DMX power supply unit, is $399. The AR-12C unit can also be purchased individually at $299 MSRP, and the AR-12P can be purchased individually at $99.
